He is also going to Wuppertal and he is willing to bring this stuff.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2013/07/cycling-with-the-ketelbrothers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2013/07/cycling-with-the-ketelbrothers#comments Bible study Camping Euro Tour 2013 Family Holiday Movie Photo's Recumbents Wed, 17 Jul 2013 09:44:23 +0000 XL-Network 1481 at http://xl-network.com Sailing on the Zuidlaardermeer http://xl-network.com/blog/2013/06/sailing-on-the-zuidlaardermeer <p>Last Saturday we went to the Zuidlaardermeer (the lake of Zuidlaren) with our improv theater club Ulteam.

I've already bought six pieces of two meter long cable conduit and I've made an appointment with my parents (my dad is a construction worker) on Sunday. If you haven't noticed, 'the big project' is a home theater projection.</p> <p>First we started to hang the screen.

And it was good fun! Then it had a big propellor on the back to push yourself forward. The current version has a rear wheel with a Marathon Winter tire with spikes. This makes you go faster because of the direct grip. This time we went for a nice little round on the Zuidlaardermeer. First a hour of cycling with Ocho to the starting location and then in the cold with the Ice-Bat. I forgot to bring my gloves (you don't need them in a velomobile), but I could borrow David and Steve their pair. Do you want to try a Ice-Bat? <a href="http://icebatracing.com/events.htm" title="Ice-Bat racing: events">Sign up</a> and come to Groningen, Assen or Heerenveen.

Get some games, order foot, rent the club, laptop, projector, profile stickers, drink vouchers, decorations, balloons, prizes for the games, music, Like stickers, to much to mention. And of course, promotion for the party. And of course not everything goes as plans. I received the stickers to print the profile stickers on and bought the paper for the vouchers and the home made memory game. Turns out my printer ink was empty. I quickly ordered a new cartridge and printed and cut everything the day before.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/09/feestboek-was-a-success" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/09/feestboek-was-a-success#comments Family Filming Gadgets Games Movie Party Photo's Recumbents Rowing Stapmaatjes Theatresports Sun, 16 Sep 2012 20:00:50 +0000 XL-Network 1417 at http://xl-network.com My very first TV appearance http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/09/my-very-first-tv-appearance <p>It's about four years ago, but I want to share it with you anyway.

Yes, but there is a good reason for that. The Nazca Fuego Top-Sport Edition was the first recumbent bike I bought some four years ago. With this bike I have had many adventures. We made our first 218 kilometer long monster ride, we attended the first Easter meeting and Autumn meeting, we went on a sailboat for a week, rode to Germany in two days (and back again with a total of 694 kilometers) and we did a one day tour of 314 kilometers around the IJsselmeer. Today there is just a bit more then 7.300 kilometers on the odometer. And that is not much. The last year and a half the bike stood in the shed most of the time. Only the last couple of days, since I've <a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/fido-is-gone" title="Fido is gone!">sold</a> Velox Incendia, I've been riding it a bit more. It's being used for now, but still... I'm going to sell it. Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice bike, but a velomobile is just so easy and comfortable that this bike gets to little attention. And that's a pity. That's why I want to sell it so it's new owner can take it for a ride and somebody else can enjoy the pleasure of riding a recumbent.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/sites/xl-network.com/files/imagecache/full/images/Nazca%20Fuego%20for%20sale%20%28left%20side%29.jpg" title="Nazca Fuego for sale (left side)"><img src="http://xl-network.com/sites/xl-network.com/files/imagecache/large/images/Nazca%20Fuego%20for%20sale%20%28left%20side%29.jpg" alt="Nazca Fuego for sale (left side)" class="lightbox" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/nazca-fuego-top-sport-edition-for-sale" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/nazca-fuego-top-sport-edition-for-sale#comments Movie Photo's Recumbents Mon, 16 Jul 2012 20:20:29 +0000 XL-Network 1397 at http://xl-network.com Operation successful http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/operation-successful <p>I picked up my bike again yesterday after it went in for <a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/the-operating-table" title="The operating room">surgery</a> last Wednesday. Unfortunately it cost around three hours to resolve the problem. The left rear LED light was defect and there was a break in the wire in front which caused both lights shine very dim. The indicator buzzer was attached a bit better and the original bike computer was put back in place. Why? Well, because I ordered a <a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/12/xl-goes-xs" title="XL goes XS">new bike</a> and I put the old one up <a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/05/sinner-mango-for-sale" title="Sinner Mango+ for sale">for sale</a>.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/operation-successful" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/operation-successful#comments Maintenance Movie Police Recumbents Stapmaatjes What they say Fri, 06 Jul 2012 14:57:06 +0000 XL-Network 1388 at http://xl-network.com Haywire http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/07/haywire <p>Because I was wondering last Friday who <a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/06/who-are-my-visitors" title="Who are my visitors?">my visitors</a> are I want to write about more subjects, other then recumbent bikes.
